Currently sitting at the top of the English Premier League, Arsenal has been given an added boost ahead of the game this Saturday against Southampton with a stylish new club suit designed by Lanvin.
Created by Lanvin Homme designer Lucas Ossendrijver, the midnight blue suits feature a small gold Arsenal crest on the lapel and are worn with white poplin shirts and a solid red tie. Accessories include black Lanvin derby shoes, a matching belt, and Arsenal-engraved cufflinks.
“We are delighted to welcome Lanvin to the Club as our official tailor,” said Vinai Venkatesham, Arsenal’s sales and marketing director.
“The fashion house has a remarkable history and proud heritage, and is an institution in its field having opened in 1889, only three years after Arsenal played its first match. The suits are a classic design, and will give players and staff a unified and stylish appearance”.
Earlier this month Italian brand Versace unveiled smart off-field designs for Spanish giants Real Madrid. And the football and fashion tie-ins are a popular trend: Arsenal’s domestic rivals Manchester United have their tailoring provided by Paul Smith, while back in Italy it’s Dolce & Gabbana who outfit AC Milan.
